    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    ― Marcus Aurelius

    It's a neat system, although it would be handy on that site to have some kind of lookup where the exact longitude and latitude of the bottom left corner of each square could be determined.

    I know a paramedic who works in a remote area where they regularly need a helicopter and they use this.

    Interesting idea, although for communication of location it would be better if they restricted the words used to those of the phonetic alphabet, because people will mishear or misspell them.

    Slightly more than 3 words needed there though.
    Boomers tend to believe in “freedom of speech”, which is a fascist concept used to spread hateful ideas.Given that hate speech is not possible without free speech, any defence of free speech is a form of hate speech. - Titania McGrath
